Course Description:

Do you want to take a PCCN course that explains why we do the things we do?  Do you want to learn things in a way that makes sense, so you don’t have to cram and memorize information?

This newly recorded PCCN preparation course is different than any other PCCN review course.  The traditional review course is fast and furious and does not always take the time to teach important concepts. This preparation course takes you on a learning journey that leads to readiness and confidence in sitting for the PCCN certification exam offered by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (AACN).  

Content is based on the most recent 2020 exam blueprint.  The course includes 37 hours of comprehensive video content that is available on demand 24/7.  Your success in this journey is important to us.  We want you to succeed in achieving certification and we want to help you achieve your goals. Therefore, we are including our PCCN practice questions at no extra charge to you.  There are more than 1,400 practice questions that you can use to enhance your learning.  You can review the questions by topic in study mode, which allows you to review answers and the read the extensive rational we have included for each question as you go.  The rationale further enhances your learning.  You can also take full practice tests to prepare you for test day.  The videos and the practice questions will give you the confidence you need to take and pass the PCCN Certification exam.
